Genesis Mini 2 Full Game Lineup Announced

Sega has just announced the full game lineup for the Genesis Mini 2 via the video above and there’s some surprises!  They’ve included two previously unreleased games, as well as new ports of previous games.  The full game list and some speculation on the above video can be found below the links:

I watched the full video above and added their notes for each game to the list below.  Sometimes it was a bit hard to tell if the game’s description was calling out features that were always there, or things that were added for this console.  Like, for Ecco the Dolphin, it said “in this revamp of the classic for Sega CD”.  Were they referring to the Sega CD port having much better music than the Genesis, or were they implying this version of Ecco was a ‘revamp’?

Edit:  Someone seems to have translated an interview with the team.  Check it out here, with a full (US) game list underneath:
